Inter can edge out a lead

The semi-finals of a cup tournament are generally always tense affairs. Especially the first leg of such contests. Inter are the favourites to win this opening foray in this season’s Coppa Italia semi-final.

After all, it was just back in early January that they paid a league visit to Napoli and collected a 3-1 win. Back on home soil, they will be expected to deliver another success over them.

Antonio Conte’s men took a 4-2 Milan derby success on the weekend after having been 2-0 down to their rivals AC Milan in the game.

That extended their unbeaten streak of form to ten games in all competitions (home and away). Inter have suffered just one loss in their last sixteen games, which was a one-goal margin defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Inter have suffered just the two home losses this season in all competitions and they are currently undefeated in their last six at the San Siro (W4 D2).

In the last round of the Coppa Italia, they earned a 2-1 home win over Fiorentina.

Both teams have scored in each of Inter’s last five home fixtures. Three times in their last six home games, Inter have scored exactly four goals in a game.

 

Can Napoli do enough to keep in touch at the San Siro?

While Inter are in a big title push in Serie A, Napoli are floundering around mid-table. So the Coppa Italia is likely to be a big target for them to add a bit of cheer to what has been a disappointing season so far.

In their weekend league game, Napoli took a tumble at home in a 2-2 loss against Lecce.

In their last eight games in all competitions (home and away) Lazio are W 4 L4. A closer examination of their away form suggests that punters are going to have a tough time backing them to come away from the San Siro with a win.

Napoli have won only three of their last eleven away games across all competitions. Granted two of those have been in their last three away from home, league wins at Sassuolo and Sampdoria.

The last time that Napoli took an away clean sheet was back at the start of October. Napoli started this Coppa Italia campaign with a 2-0 home win over Perugia before edging Lazio in the last round.

As a positive for them, Napoli have only lost one of their last six games against Inter home and away (W2 D3 L1). Napoli have won only one of their last seven away games at Inter (all competitions) and have failed to score in three of their last four trips there.

 

Inter vs Napoli Betting Advice

Inter’s second-half fightback against AC Milan on the weekend was pretty spectacular. It says a lot about them and they have the home form going to pick up a victory here. It is worth a look at both teams to score in the match still, as neither are great at the back.

 

Key Facts – Inter vs Napoli Betting Tip

  • Inter are unbeaten in 10 home games in all competitions
  • Inter took a 3-1 league win at Napoli in January
  • Napoli are W2 D1 L1 in previous Coppa Italia meetings

 

There just doesn’t look to be enough form from Napoli away from home, to see them doing enough for the victory. Given that this is the first leg of the contest, it is probably not worth expecting an explosive start, but Inter can take a win.
